Preview: SIX @ Norwich Playhouse
Share This Article:
Coming from a sold out "showcase" run at the Arts Theatre in London, SIX will be making its stage debut at the Norwich Playhouse this July. The show promises to be a thrilling new addition to British musical theatre, taking an anachronistic approach to the story of Henry VIII's wives, with music heavily inspired by the world of pop. Described as a "pop concert like no other", SIX will take you through the story of Henry's ex-wives from their perspective, as the 'queen bee's take the task of narration back into their own hands. The project comes from Toby Marlow & Lucy Moss, two thirds of production company Hot Gay Time Machine, who met at the University of Cambridge where they became collaborative partners. The show began life at the Edinburgh Fringe, winning the Musical Theatre Review Best Musical Award, where it caught the attention of producers Kenny Wax and Global Musicals. Starring as the eponymous 'six' are: Renée Lamb (Catherine of Aragon), Christina Modestou (Anne Boleyn), Natalie Paris (Jane Seymour), Genesis Lynea (Anna of Cleves), Aimie Atkinson (Catherine Howard) and Izuka Hoyle (Catherine Parr).
You can see SIX at the Norwich Playhouse from 11-15th July, after which it'll be heading to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and then for a full run at the West End. Tickets can be bought from the Norwich Playhouse's website here.
